Riesling "Muhlforst" Vendanges Tardives 2015 Alsace - Domaine Vincent Stoeffler


"Vendanges Tardives" means the wine was made from grapes harvested later than usual, when the "noble rot" or Botrytis Cinerea starts to affect the grapes, making them loose almost all their water content. Thanks to its complex aromas and good acidity, Riesling is on of the most amazing grapes for late harvest wines - and you'll certainly realise it with this bottle. It exhibits intense flavours of raisin, yellow peach, plum and honey. The finish is fresh, smooth and long. A superb dessert wine, not to be missed if you fancy them!
